In the first installment of this series, which ran last Wednesday right before Thanksgiving, we took a look at local artist Sean O’Meallie‘s former career as a toy inventor.

In this second installment, O’Meallie talks about how the toy inventing business influenced his art.

    Hey. Sean O’Meallie here. I don’t know who reads these things, but I must say that Noel did a remarkable job editing the interview for this. He’s very good at it! And from what I know of Noel, his many culture projects, and his aims to include and illuminate who we are, the entire scope and intent of The Big Something program is indeed a good and big-hearted thing. I’m flattered and very happy to support it. Thanks, Noel & Delaney & KRCC!!

    Pure quirky surrealistic genius!
